    It seems like Salad Month every month in Southern California, because we never stop eating it, year-round.

    But it is actually National Salad Month and National Vinegar Month (the two seem to fit together nicely, eh?), and in honor of that I’ve created a new entrée salad for you. 

    I’m #dressingitup with a perky, deeply flavored vinaigrette made with Pompeian Balsamic Vinegar and Pompeian Extra Light Tasting Olive Oil. The vinegar is naturally gluten-free, and works great in a vinaigrette, marinade, dressing or sauce.

    Are you hungry for lunch yet?
